Title: Bubbles: Big Stink in Frog Pond  | Author: Ben Woodard | Illustrator: Fran Riddell | Publication Date: June 15, 2015 | Publisher: Miller-Martin Press | Pages: 32 | Recommended Ages: 3 to 7

Book Description: Bubbles is causing a stink. And the other frogs are not happy. They tell him to stop bubbling the water or he’ll have to leave Frog Pond. But he can’t help it. He’s been bubbling since he was a little tadpole. Will Bubbles have to leave Frog Pond? Where will he go? And what happens when danger comes? Find out in this fun picture book about friendship and self-respect for preschoolers and all ages.



This is a cute picture book story for younger children.  I've been teaching 10 month reading this summer used it to get my students talking and learning to talk back to books.  Ask questions, infer and predict what will happen.  Friendship and being the one to stand up and speak out are excellent themes in this book.  Helping the kids make a connection on how they would feel if something like this happened to them.  Love the book.
